    OK, so we upgraded our processor (computer and graphics) SUBSTANTIALLY, so we should be able to output a cleaner presentation.
    Also, I think we figured out how to do the Picture in Picture so the words to the songs can be on the screen, as well as the Scriptures I'm using.
    ALSO, we got the camera programmed for the three different views, so....

    .... by the time the Covid Crisis is over, we'll have this down pat!

    My first Zoom service for our Wed nite services. I liked it better than FB because of actually interacting. Nit mny people were on though....not everybody had Zoom set up or something...but we're learning.

    been at this church since 1984. It's SO HARD. But it's been fun learning all this stuff.

    I had online -- well maybe just video -- remote classes about [shhhh 40 ] years ago. I think we were able to ask questions. In my case, I was just in an overflow room next to the lecture room.

    It doesn't look like I can see everybody at once even on the TV if I can even cast it there? And that 1984 should be 1981

    Another great service and sermon, CP. I like the picture in picture. Still low frame rate though.

    Oh and welcome to the brotherhood of pirates, CP!

    (CP showed everyone his treasure chest during the service today!)

    He asked people to guess what was in it. Obviously it is Crispy Bacon from before the Corona War!

    Yeah, we bought a super-duper computer, but for some reason, when we plug the audio from the soundboard into its line-in, we pick up a hum. Doesn't happen with laptops, so we used a better laptop than we had, but nowhere near as good as the gaming computer we purchased.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Try plugging in the computer into the battery backup side of a UPS. I think it might filter out the 60hz hum.

    I can certainly try that - at this point, we're kinda bamfoozled.

    It depends if your UPS is actually giving you the filtered AC or just passing through while plugged in the wall (not on battery)

    Another trick is to see if you can find a 2 prong to three prong AC connector (something that removes the ground wire from the equation)

    or something like this.
